“Wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

Why stay in Monte Carlo when you can stay 1 meter from it? Great beaches 2 minutes walk from the hotel, all the amenities of an American chain, excellent breakfast, lovely service. Loved it and will go back the first chance I get.

Dear alinutzapif,
Thank you posting your experience on trip advisor and your wonderful comments.
We are very happy that you enjoyed our hotel’s facilities, our breakfast buffet, our service as well as the walking distance to the beach. Did you try the lovely seaside walk called “sentier du littoral”. Maybe a good idea for your next visit.
We are looking forward to warmly welcoming you back soon on board.

..excelent suites. Fantastic location, in front of the small port od Cap D' Ail (very close to MONACO Football Club stadium). With the exception of the not so near parking place, the hotel in more than amazing in terms of staf, room facilities, breakfast and value for money (although it is not cheap at all..).

Dear Camex,

We are very happy that you liked our hotel, the staff service and the proximity with the football stadium. Sorry to hear that you parked far away from the hotel, it seems you were not aware that we have a parking at the hotel which should indeed have been more convenient for you. We hope to warmly welcome you back soon on board.
Best regards

Parking fee 1.5€ per hour. Small room with very dirty and stained carpet. Bathroom without bidet, air system almost non-existent (after hot shower, fog for 15 minutes) and micro towel in indecent conditions (you go photo*). Everything looks old and uncared. The room rate is 179 € without breakfast. We chose the extra breakfast for 202€. But checking out, however, it was 50€ more for breakfast. This cunning to charge higher costs to the customer is from provincial tavern.

I was in this hotel because of my work. They offer me amazing room with sea view. It was grateful. The amenities are very good quality. The breakfast is with a lot options. But in my opinion is just a business hotel. Miss the magic of a vacation hotel. And the gym is very old. They should change the facilities, invest a bit more.

The workers are very friendly and available anytime. They clean the room several times in the day.

It is very close to everything.

Dear Mariwini,
Thank you posting your comments on trip advisor, we are glad that you enjoyed your business stay with us.
Usually, our guests that are staying with us on vacation also love our beautiful sea view rooms and the fact that our hotel is located on the port of Cap d’Ail, a bit out of the busy center of Monaco but still close to all facilities. Our complimentary shuttle can drive you to Monte-Carlo’s Casino and main square that is beautifully decorated for the holiday season or to the historical center of Monaco and the Prince’s Palace for example, or you would maybe prefer to make a walk in the sun along the beautiful “sentier douanier” on the sea coast close to our hotel.
In spring we open our outside swimming pool and there is a beach 5 minutes’ walking distance from the hotel.
Do not hesitate to contact us for vacation ideas, there is plenty to do in our area.
Best regards,

The Marriott Riverera is a very nice hotel located on the French side of Monaco. The hotel overlooks a marina. There are several resturants within walking distance of the hotel, and the hotel resturant was actually decent albiet a little expensive. The hotel provided a shuttle to various areas in Monaco, this was great to have available. The staff at the hotel was excellent, they provided excellent service and were very helpful. The hotel is also within walking distance of the local bus stop and a small downtown area. The rooms were ok, not small but certainly not large, but they were spotless and well maintained. We had a room overlooking the marina, which was very nice, some rooms overlooked a ball field while other had a sea view.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the marina were very nice, the view also looked at to the open water.

We've enjoyed Marriott properties around the world, but of course, some are better than others. That's why, based on a few reviewers' comments, I thought this would be a nice but not great property. Au contraire. Admittedly, we stayed here in the quieter season (late October) when the hotel was less crowded, although the weather was gorgeous with warm days and wonderfully cool nights; but the staff was welcoming and helpful, the public areas pleasant, inviting and well-maintained, and our room plenty spacious, well-equipped, quiet and spotless. We had a sea-view room on the 8th floor with a private balcony overlooking the yacht harbor, with the Med just beyond. (All sea-view rooms have balconies--great place to enjoy a nightly cocktail.) The king bed was wonderfully firm and comfortable and made for 4 great nights of sleep. While we did use the hotel's shuttle one time to get to the train station for the train to Nice, we were on vacation and in no great hurry, so it was easy to walk from the hotel or alternatively take one of Monaco's easy-to-use busses to virtually anywhere in Monaco. So the Marriott made a great base from which to explore Monaco and yet be just enough removed from the hustle-bustle of the city. Since we are Marriott gold status members, the breakfast buffet was included in our tariff---and I would rate it very highly. Sure, it may not be at the level of one of the JW resorts in Asia, but for our purposes it was plentiful, full of variety and delicious. And speaking of eating and drinking, we also enjoyed a lunch and a dinner at the hotel, as well as a couple of drinks at the bar, and the food and beverages were likewise excellent and the service warm and attentive. In a word, our 4 nights at the Marriott Riviera were a treat--far exceeding our expectations. Our thanks to the whole staff for their good work. We'll look forward to returning again in the future.

Room Tip: Sea-view room, higher floor. Some floors have ice machines (thanks, Marriott, these are a welcome a...

Dear froamer,
Thank you very much for this perfect rating and your nice and detailed comments of your greatexperience with us. We are very happy to learn that you used tripadvisor rewiewers comments and that you decided to try us … and even more that we managed to go above your expectations, enjoying a very nice stay in our sea-view room, its balcony and a nightly cocktail. Besides our complimentary shuttle service to the city center, Monaco’s city-buses are indeed very convenient to travel anywhere around in town.
I shared your feedback with our housekeeping and engineering teams and they were very happy. Our Restaurant Team: Waiters and Cooks were also very happy that you liked both the food and service an the quality of the dishes.

We are looking forward to warmly welcoming you back soon

Kind regards,

The view over the marina of Cap d'Ail, the luxury of allowing a gentle sea breeze's flowing in the room during the night, then taking breakfast under the warm sunshine are all kept as the best memories of my yearly stays there.
It's "laid back", overall, the asset is - you are on a business trip and the hotel experience, it's calm atmosphere, really let you chill in the evening.
Would a sea link with the airport in Nice be a possibility?

Dear Franco D,

Thank you for your loyalty to our hotel. We are very happy that you chose us each year for your stay at the French Riviera and that you enjoy our location and relaxed atmosphere.

A sea link from the airport of Nice does not exist, but you can take the helicopter with Heliair to fly you straight from the Nice airport to Monaco’s heliport.

They have a free shuttle that will then drive you to our hotel, and you can even walk to us – its 5 minutes- if you have few luggage and prefer to take a breath of fresh air.

The flight costs about the same as a taxi fair, and it’s a unique experience. We are looking forward to warmly welcome you back next year.

Kind Regards
